A $10,000 reward has been offered by The Humane Society and Pasados Safe Haven for information that leads to the conviction of the person or people responsible for the dog's death.
In a press statement, Dan Paul, the Humane Society's Washington director said:
"This is a truly horrific situation in all aspects. To think about the suffering this dog experienced in her final moments, as well as knowing there's an individual or individuals in our state who would perpetrate this type of abuse, is sickening. We are hopeful this reward will bring someone forward with information about this despicable crime," said
Erika Johnson of the Thurston County Animal Services said:
"Something like this is not very common. This is horrific,". She added: "Fortunately we don't see something this heinous very often."
